Every Dollar Can Change a Soul

Stewardship


CS - Counsels on Stewardship (1940) Chapter 17— Every Dollar Charged

Will you withhold from God His own? Will you divert from the treasury the portion of means which the Lord claims as His? If so, you are robbing God, and every dollar is charged against you in the books of heaven.—The Review and Herald, December 23, 1890. {CS 86.4}


Why the Blessing is Withheld from Some-

Hasten, my brethren and sisters, to bring to God a faithful tithe, and to bring Him also a willing thank offering. There are many who will not be blessed till they make restitution of the tithe which they have withheld. God is waiting for you to redeem the past. The hand of the holy law is laid upon every soul who enjoys God’s benefits. Let those who have kept back their tithe make an accurate reckoning, and bring to the Lord that of which they have robbed His work. Make restitution, and bring the Lord peace offerings. “Let him take hold of My strength, that he may make peace with Me; and he shall make peace with Me.” If you acknowledge that you have done wrong in misappropriating His goods, and freely and fully repent, He will forgive your transgression.—The Review and Herald, December 10, 1901. {CS 87.1}


God is a loving and forgiving God. So much that He gave His only begotten son to take the sin of the world upon Himself. If we confess and repent of our sins, He is faithful and just to forgive us of our sins and cleanse us from all unrighteousness. God blesses us with the wherewithal to acquire means that provide for our families and ourselves. All that we have belongs to Him. God only requires that we return a small portion to His treasury in order to carry out His plan of salvation. To those who do not, it will be charged against them in the books of heaven.


Our kind and gracious Father,

We thank You for all You have done for us, all that You do, and all You will do, and we thank You in advance for all the blessings You have in store for us. We thank You for entrusting us with the responsibility of carrying out Your plan of salvation. We are grateful for giving us the ability to provide for our families and ourselves. We are eternally grateful to You for paying the ransom on our behalf. We are sorry we have sinned against You and pray for Your forgiveness. Please bless the means we return as Your stewards, and may it help to further the plan of salvation. We thank You and praise You, in the name of Christ Jesus, we pray. Amen.
